If you are serious about web development, take a look on modern.IE

Writing cool HTML and CSS code is not always the easiest thing to do, specially if you need to get it working on older browsers.

Modern.ie is  Microsofts effort to make this easier for you. Modern.ie is a dev center with free (yes free) tools and resources to spend more time building your web applications instead of testing it on older browsers.

  • Download virtual machines
  • Scan a webpage for common coding issues
  • Test BrowserStack for 3 months.

Every Web Developer is a Win8 developer presentation on MultiMania

First of all, I had a great time on MultiMania and met a lot of great people over there. People from different worlds. Every day I work mainly in a Microsoft world, developing websites with ASP.NET MVC but I’m also busy in HTML5, CSS3 and the combination is something that I love.

But on MultiMania I had the chance to talk to Adobe people, Game creators, … Some talks were inspirational, other ones were technical and that what it’s all about isn’t it!

On MultiManie Dieter and I gave a presentation on Win8 development and how you can use your existing web skills to build Metro applications.

In case you’ve missed it, here are the slides: http://www.slideshare.net/kevinderudder/every-web-developer-is-a-win8-developer
